NASHVILLE, Tenn.--Members of a New York motorcycle club which also operated in Tennessee were sentenced to prison on Wednesday stemming from RICO conspiracy and firearm charges.

The U.S. Department of Justice reports Gregory "Flip" Wilson and Glen "Turbo" Stacharczyck were sentenced to 180 months and 57 months in prison, respectively.

The men were members of the Kingsmen Motorcycle Club, a gang which the DOJ says operated in Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.

According to plea agreements of the two men, Wilson admitted to punching a woman repeatedly in 2009, causing her eyes to swell shut following a verbal altercation. The assault took place at a Pennsylvania clubhouse and the DOJ says Wilson nor any other members called for medical help.

The woman was then taken back to New York where Wilson and his mother kept her secluded against her will to hide her injuries.

In 2013, Wilson was also accused of being involved in the assault of another KMC chapter and stripping the men of their colors for being non-compliant. Those members they stripped of colors later taunted the KMC, leading Wilson and other to conduct a drive-by-shooting while using a van.

The DOJ says Wilson and the men found the former members at their old clubhouse then slid open the side of the van and opened fire with a shotgun.

In addition to the crimes, police found Wilson stored cocaine at a girlfriend's house and was found with marijuana, mushrooms, a firearm and ammunition in his personal residence.

Plea agreements also show KMC members and their associates used and distributed marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, and sold firearms at clubhouses.

The sentences are the latest in an investigation which included the FBI Knoxville division, ATF, ICE, and other law enforcement agencies. The club's president has also been convicted and will be sentenced in February 2019.
